Guest curator Mathieu Copeland presents “A Spoken Word Exhibition” at Tranzitdisplay.
The exhibition consists of artworks repeated by the art centre‘s staff. By leaving the gallery space empty and making works available only on demand, an exchange is initiated between spectators and the gallery staff. An exhibition of the same nature & material as that of the artworks that it is constituted of, which are words. Artworks only spoken, exchanged as a verbal gesture from one person to another, generating ultimately an exhibition that only last the time it takes to hear it.

Artists contributing to “A Spoken Words Exhibition” include Vito Acconci, Robert Barry, James Lee Byars, Nick Currie (aka Momus), Douglas Coupland, Karl Holmqvist, Maurizio Nannucci, Yoko Ono, Mai-Thu Perret, Emilio Prini, Tomas Vanek, Lawrence Weiner, and Ian Wilson.
